    heating wii

    i could use any help anyone can offer on this but when i turn off my wii i leave wiiconnect24 on (purposely). when i wake back up to see the blue ligh ton everytime i feel it and its really really hot. now i know its not just me because my friend says his does it too but i was wandering if the wii is supposed to heat up like that or theres something wrong with it

    That's normal. The processor still runs when WC24 is turned on, but the fans don't (to reduce power). There will be quite a bit of heat generated, but not enough to do any damage.
    ... but what do I know?...

    i dont have this problem, it seems it only happens when i leave a disc in or something but i could be wrong, so registered nerd, the processor can run and heat up without any damage to it? just trying to understand, i dont know about tech things like that :-p

    Not to say I know alot about the wii, but I'm sure that WC24 uses so little processing power that the heat generated would be minimal. As long as the wii isn't closed up in a poorly ventilated cabinet, you'll be just fine.

    Hours of constant gameplay will generate more heat than weeks of idling w/WC24.

    Don't worry, there will be an intercooler for the Wii within early next year.


    If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.

    I knew it wouldn't take long for someone to notice!! I wish I could use a family guy .wav file in place of a text sig... I love the theme song, in fact it was stuck in my head this morning LOL

    Well, that's it... time for me to go and try to put the ball in the cup!

    I wonder if Wario Ware has ball in a cup ???? Hmmmmm
